Updates from TUTH: The agenda and the drama

Amid the deteriorating health of Dr. Govinda K C on fourth day of fasting, the drama by the sycophants of politically appointed Dean Dr. Dharma Kanta Baskota has reached its climax. They have pasted all the defamatory pamphlets against Dr. K C while also claiming that their relay fasting is both for ensuring the service in the hospital as well as "lifting the institution from corruption and annual loss" or something like that.

Meanwhile the Nepal Medical Association has renewed its pledge to support Dr. K C's agenda drawing the attention of all government authorities related with the issue.

National Resident Doctor's Association is attempting to meet the PM in a bid to solve the crisis. As the PM is understood to be on way back from Chepang Basti in Chitwan, efforts are underway to hold talks with Ministry of Education Officials. Negotiation with either authorities are expected during office ours today though nothing can be said with certainty.

Meanwhile, even though some confusion prevails in the hospital, the no. of patients approaching the hospital for OPD services has dwindled, mostly because the service was closed after putting a notice yesterday.

So far the only aim of the relay drama appears to be creating commotion and confrontation in the hospital so that the whole agenda degenerates into feud between two groups. If they fail to create that (which will be the case most likely), the drama will most likely be aborted soon. They left everyone with common sense fuming yesterday by heaping allegations against Dr. K C, yet restraint was visible  for any confrontation would serve their interest.

Let's hope some sense will prevail among the authorities today including the PMO and Health Ministry. Keep tuned for updates.

जीवन, खुशी अहंकार

जीवनमा अफ्ठ्यारा घुम्तीहरुमा हिंडिरहँदा मैले कुनै क्षणमा पलायनलाई एउटा विकल्पको रुपमा कल्पना गरेको थिएँ, त्यसलाई यथार्थमा बदल्ने आँट गरिनँ, त्यो बेग्लै कुरा हो त्यसबेला लाग्थ्योः मेरा समग्र दुखहरुको कारण मेरो वरपरको वातावरण हो, यसबाट साहसपूर्वक बाहिरिएँ भने नयाँ दुख आउलान् तर तत्क्षणका दुरुह दुखहरु गायब भएर जानेछन् कति गलत थिएँ !

Debating partition of India: culpability and consequences

Why I write...

I do not know why I often tend to view people rather grimly: they usually are not as benevolent, well-intentioned and capable or strong as they appear to be. This assumption is founded on my own self-assessment, though I don’t have a clue as to whether it is justifiable to generalize an observation made in one individual. This being the fact, my views of writers as ‘capable’ people are not that encouraging: I tend to see them as people who intend to create really great and world-changing writings but most of the times end up producing parochial pieces. Also, given the fact that the society where we grow and learn is full of dishonesty, treachery, deceit and above else, mundanity, it is rather unrealistic to expect an entirely reinvigorating work of writing from every other person who scribbles words in paper.

On life's challenges

Somebody has said: “I was born intelligent but education ruined me”. I was born a mere child, as everyone is, and grew up as an ordinary teenager eventually landing up in youth and then adulthood. The extent to which formal education helped me to learn about the world may be debatable but it definitely did not ruin me. There were, however, things that nearly ruined me. There came moments when I contemplated some difficult choices. And there came and passed periods when I underwent through an apparently everlasting spell of agony. There came bends in life from which it was very tempting to move straight ahead instead of following the zigzag course.
